With a view to this scientifically-evolved and easily-acquired Lan- 
guage becoming the means of intercommunication after the War, 
business people in several countries are satisfactorily preparing for 
" the good time coming." Britons learned Esperanto sooner than 
they could the Russian alphabet, and foreigners acquire a fluent 
use of Esperanto lonp, long before they can understand our words 
and the fickle and changing sounds of the letters of our alphabet.

PREFACE TO 1923-24 EDITION. 



WE have again diligently collected and carefully 
arranged the useful and up-to-date information 
regarding Buteshire — the Officials for the whole county 
and. its individual parishes, and Householders and Busi- 
ness people in the more enterprising districts. 

Notwithstanding the continued very high prices, we 
have striven to maintain our Directory as full as in pre- 
war times, and that without a subsequent commensurate 
advance of rates. With the continued support of former 
patrons, we, with patient industry, will continue in the 
way of well-doing. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, with prompt receipt of orders, we keep 
permanent this decided benefit. 

This Directory is not Only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; and we are particularly anxious 
that nothing of benefit to Buteshire is omitted, but that 
all interests have a good show, and everything brought 
thoroughly up to date. 

[For a number of years we have corresponded, per the 

International Language, with persons in all civilised lands, 

and in our spare pages we again give glimpses of some our 

propaganda — which, we trust, will here interest those who 

i hope for international peace, good-will and harmony.] 

i Those who wish Lists of Householders arranged in 
'Streets or Districts can get that in the Official Voters' Roll 
— in whole or in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes.

The Evening Times, Glasgow— " Much information of interest and value to Buteshire 
folks is contained in the Bute County Directory. It is interesting to note that the 
compiler of the Directory, .Brother George Higgle, is the only surviving office-bearer 
who was at the jubilee of Rothesay St John 50 years ago, and is still in office. He 
was manager, reporter, and printer of the ' Rothesay Chronicle" half a century ago, 
and was the oldest Volunteer in the county during the war." — Aug., 1921.

LONG LIVE THE BUTE DIRECTORY. 

The Opinions of the Press and the Acknowledgments of Libraries 

are as complimentary as ever. The " Glasgow Evening News" makes the following 
appreciation of " Local Colour. — The compilers of the Bute County Directory 
have an ingenious method of making up the local colour and stimulating local pride 
Instead of filling up the Calendar with the stock anniversaries, they have put against 
each date a local happening." Thus --[Two events mentioned]. " It is certainly an 
idea that makes for ' atmosphere. ' "

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald— . . . . <> To Arran and Ayrshire people this 
Directory should be of considerable service. Buteshire is fortunate in having such an 
excellent handbook of local information, and the publishers are to be congratulated on 
their enterprise." 

Greenock Herald— ..." The Directory is most conveniently set out, and any 
information of any kind regarding the towns and villages will be found therein." 

Helensburgh and Gareloch Times— . . " The Directory is admirably arranged 

and a marvel of cheapness." 



COUNTY OF BUTE. 

rPHE COUNTY OF BUTE comprises the seven islands in the Firth of Clyde, viz. 
JL — Bute, the most populous; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cumbraes, off the Ayrsmre Const; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
marnock, off Bute. 

The total Arka of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
130,658 acres, of which 53,5L0 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25.981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothesay and 
Millvoist) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14,151; 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In 
1*91 it was 18,248 (8.057 males and 10,197 females) ; and in 1901, 18,786 (8,412 
males and 10,374 females') — being an increase of 255 in the ten years — 2'1 per cent 
There were 4.270 inhabited houses in the islands. 
For 1911, the figures were as follows : — 
Males. 
Arran - 2,169 

Bute (including Rothesay) 5,081 
Cumbrae - - - 704 

*The increased total issued in the Quarterly Return of the Registrar- 
General compared with the returns lodged with the JSherifr-Clerk,

Parish of North Bute. 

r J , 'HIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-*• village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhaabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Banuockburn. 

At the 1921 census, (taken in June instead of April) the parish contained 120i 
males and 1529 females— total, 2730.

ESPERANTO, - 

BOOK-KE EPING. 

MR HIGGIE'S CLASSES FOR PRACTICAL INSTRUC- 
TION are conducted daring the two' Winter Quarters — 
October till December and January till March. 

PRIVATE TUITION BY ARRANGEMENT. 

SllOPthand. continues to be taught with a view to 'its subsequent useful- 
ness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
sation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing, 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto. — -This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie, being an official of the 
Universal Esperanto Association's in touch with important regions all over the world 
and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere — notwithstanding their different 
national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be " Peace 
en earth and good will to; men," which is coining yet in spite of the present times of 
"great tribulation "—caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindrance 
to peaceful re-constrnction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones was repeaetedly evidenced during the past troubles, 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth" The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despots 
were beaten, but Righteousness is yet to be exalted, and frightf.uliress loathed. The 
longed-for league of nations is evolving, when harmony and good-will shall yet reign 
in spite of all present discord and ooposition — but not without many sacrities, much 
service and suffering. Prosperity will not come through desiring something for no- 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good. 

BOOlC-Keeping 1 . — Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to- 
Date Business Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Pro- 
fession, and the ground-work and minutsea have long been familiar to Mr Higgie, a 
practical Printer. 

Messrs HIGGIE & COY.'S ESPERANTO PUBLICATIONS 
are known, read and appreciated throughout the whole civilised world. Many of the 
contributions are written by up-to-date foreigners.

The Isle of Arran. 

THIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
the variety of its geological deposits. The island is twenty miles in length 
twelve in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
on the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their postponed Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed 
some very interesting sheep dog trials — which lengthened their stay

CHAR M of the HEA THER 

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
XJL hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 
We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing J°y Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 
priate. 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is one of the acknowledgments we received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec. 
Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rolliesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint's- 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, James Foubes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, tbat 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

Th« exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter or parcel rates.

A Diversion for the Leisure Hour. 



HOW MANY LANGUAGES do you speak? Unless you a re a professional 
interpreter, or have lived abroad a good deal, you will probably reylp, "One, 
of course; English." That so ? But English is composed of dozens of other tongues 
— in fact, you cannot say the simplest thing without using a number of foreign words. 
Take your house, for instances, and see how many languages are needed to describe it. 

The word garden is a word meaning an enclosure, and comes from the old Vikings 
The porch is a Latin word ; so is the vestibule, which was originally the place where 
the Romans left their vestments or overcoats. 

The parlour is derived from the French word parler. to speak. It is the place where 
you speak to your friends. The dining room is also French, but the drawing room is 
English. The word is really withdrawing room — the room to which people with- 
draw after dinner. 

Some women have their own little dens, which they call boudoirs — French again! 
Boudoir means " a sulking place," and is the room to which the lady of the house 
retired to pout away her ill-humour, when she was feeling she hated everybody. A 
recess in a room is called an alcove, which is an Arabic word meaning an arch. 

The kitchen is Latin : scullery is certainly not an English word, but it is doubtful 
whether it was the place where the Romans put their trays, or that where the Vikings 
swilled their pots. The larder is a French word, meaniag bacon-store. 

The staircase is German. At the top of it is the passage, a French word meaning 
" space for moving to and fro." Often it is called a corridor, thereby using,a Latin 
word meaning " rnnning-about place." The Romans gave it this name because their 
children used it as a playground. 

The lumber room — really Lombard room — is the place where the Lombards, the 
great Italian bankers of the Middle Ages kept their papers. It is also given the 
German name, garret, or the Greek name, attic. Greek temples were built with a 
triangular structure above the pillars at either end, hence the name is given to the 
room with a painted ceiling at the top of the house. 

Houses are built of French bricks and roofed with slates, a German word meaning 
1 split things." The chimneys are Greek, the gutters that collect the rain water are 
French, while the water sponts that carry it away are Swedish. 

Icelandic windows keep out the wind, and at night Venetian blinds are drawn. 
These, by the way, came to Venice from Spain, where they were called "jealousies." 
The jealous Spanish husband kept his wife in seclusion. She was not allowed to 
draw up her blinds, but she might peep through the slits between the laths. 

When you speak of a veranda you talk in pure Persian, or you might launch out 
into German by calling it a balcony. The bay windows in front of tlie house come 
from Baiae, a health resort of ancient Rome. 

If your brain begins to whirl at the thought of all the tongues that you speak in 
naming the parts of your house, you can put on your Hindustani pyjamas, jump into 
your German bed, lay your Scandinavian head on the Latin pillow and Saxon bolster, 
pull np the Gothic sheets, the French blankets, and the Danish eiderdown, turn out 
the Greek lamp, and seek the Latin solace of Saxon sleep ! 

The English is not the only language made up from others and become known all 
over the world. Esperanto is similarly constructed, and has become the means of 
easy communication among people who believe in good-will, peace, and universal under j 
standing. There is not a subject which cannot be dismissed and settled by it. It is 
logical, euphonious, easy to acquire, and pleasant and profitable to use. The League of 
Nations has recommended its adoption. It was conceived in the troublous districts 
of eastern Europe, by an observant Jew with the Christian outlook. It is as free as 
the pure air of heaven, can be learned in private and circulated throughout the 
world by the art of printing. It is pre-eminently pro bono publico. 

National and International Esperanto Congresses are regularly held annually. 
A Special Conference on Esperanto in Commerce held at Venice, at Eastertide, 1923-

Call of World Alliance to League of Nations 

APPEAL TO THE CHURCHE8. 

(From the Glasgow Bulletin, April 21st, 1923.) 

\ DELEGATION from the WORLD ALLIANCE for PROMOTING INTER- 
t\ NATIONAL FRIENDSHIP. THROUGH the CHURCHES, whose manage- 
ment committee, representing 24 countries, has just been meeting at Zurich, called on 
the Secretary-General of the League of Nations yesterday afternoon to present a re- 
solution. The delegation was headed by Dr Alexander Ramsay, organiser for Europe. 

The committee deplore the continued unrest in Europe. They declare their convic- 
tion that the enlv hope for the salvation of Europe and its escape from present diffi- 
culties lies in applying the spirit and teaching of Christ to the problem with which it 
is confronted. 

The committee therefore urge Christians in all lands to manifest this spirit in the 
face of all influences which make for the national egoism and bitterness of feeling. 

A Common Effort. 

The committee reaffirm its declaration of the World Alliance that the League of Na- 
tions, enlarged and improved, is to be found the most helpful means of removing the 
danger of war, and that it should be the task of the Chnrch to inspire among people 
of every land enthusiasm for this great conception, and willingness to labour for its 
complete realisation. 

At the present moment it is clear that the settlement of the question of reparations 
on a sound economic basis is the most urgent step towards the adjustment of the 
relations between France and Germany, and the reconciliation of Europe, and in the 
opinion of the committee this can only be accomplished by an impartial authority. 

But the question is not confined to France and Germany. All civilised nations are 
interested in a just and permanent settlement, and it should therefore be carried 
through by a common effort inspired by a Christian purpose of brotherly aid and 
mutual sacrifice. 

League and Initiative. 

The League of Nations is the only international agency which can take the initiative 
in bringing this about. By its action in co-operation with other nations, including 
Germany and the United States of America, it should be possible to constitute a body 
before which all parties would consent to lay their case, to organise adequate 
financial measures for carrying the desision into effect, and to set up such a system of 
mutual protection as will secure the safety of all countries and general peace. 

If for any reason it should prove impracticable for the League to take the initia- 
tiTe, the committee is convinced that the situation is so critical that seme other means 
must be found for bringing together such a conference. 

The committee appeal to the national councils of the Alliance to lay this message 
before the various churches.

BUTK COUNTY DIRECTORY ADVERTISEMENT. 



The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time. and attention is tievoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel of the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with Jtothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated, 
but embraces the whole of the County of Bute — 
from the outlying districts of which more interest 
is respectfully solicited. 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff 
from pre-war issue, but that advance is not nearly 
equal to the increased cost of production : We de- 
sire not the curtailing of our information, but the 
continuing of everything as full as possible.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY 

This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of j)ast 
years. The Bute Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent annual. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
for them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for possible additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers. 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue 1 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland." 

Price to Subscribers, Two Shillings ; to Non-Subscribers, 
Three Shillings- Postage, Threepence.

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 



The Commercial Library, 21 Miller Street, 
18th July, 1918. 
Messrs Higgie & Co., Publishers, Rothesay. 

We have to thank you for the copy of the Bute County Directory, addressed to 
the Stirling Library. Since November, 1916, all Directories ha\ r e been transferred to 
The COMMERCIAL LIBRARY, 21 Miller Street. This library has been established 
for the use of business men, and. as since its opening, we have had over 49,000 visit- 
tors, more than one-third of whom consulted the Directories, you will appreciate the 
publicity your Directory obtains. 

Yours faithfully, 

Jno Phillips, Librai;an. 



This Directory came out regularly during the stren- 
ous years of the Great War. 

We are striving to keep the lists as full as ever during 
the present time oi industrial depression. Being optim- 
ists, we hope we shall win success. 

The Opinions of the Press on the latter issues are 
as complimentary as formerly. 



The "ca' canny" and similar anti-British tactics are paralysing progress and pre* 
venting prosperity. Unless there is a determined rivival ot Industry, what must 
the harvest be? It is not through the guile and covetous selfishness of the wicked 
and thoughtless, but through righteous Regeneration that ,peace and prosperity 
will be regained. 

People are willing to spend money on Holidays as well as on Business, but the 
blight of strikes, love of idleness and dreams of getting something for nothing , are 
up in opposition. 

The Revival of the Touring Season. 

The following sample enquiry letter was received after the War was over : — 

Sandown Station Road, Stechford, Birmingham, 12th June, 1919. 
Messrs Hig-gie & Co., ABC COAST GUIDE, &c. 
I shall be much obliged if you kindly send me names of any apartments you can 
recommend at Craigmore, Wemyss Bay, Millport, Craigendoran, and Tarber' * My 
Guide is 1904. Thanking you in anticipation, yours faithfully, Wm. T. Jonks. 
"Districts included in The Coast Gcidb. 
The above shows the Pleasures the public are again longing for but not engoying to 

the full because of the " ca' canny " policy and the charm of living of the rates. 
The callous numbining of Busy Hives of Industry throughout the country is ruinous. 
Charity is a splendid virtue, but it should not not be allowed to encourage pauperism.

THE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all races of Humanity 01} 
the Earth, and when we fell from the high estate in which we were created by 
our disobedience, Jesus Christ redeemed us, his Gospel of " peace on earth and good 
will to men" is to be preached to every creature, and " the gates of hell shall not prevail 
against it," The confusion of tongues at Babel is being followed by the gift of the 
perfect language foretold by Zephaniah. The walls of Jericho fell before the sounding 
of the rams' horns at the command of Joshua, and the lingual walls, which have hither- 
to divided the nations, need no longer, through the genius of another Israelite, prevent 
"all people that on earth do dwell" — whatever their creeds, colours or idiosyncrasies — 
from satisfactorily communicating with each other by means of

Esperanto, like English, is made up from other languages : its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a.gardeii pro bono publico. 

The 11 tli Annual International Congress was tu have been i clo in Edinburgh iu 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfer of the 11th to San Erancisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there,and a Tuta 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 1 la Tuta Hondo Esperanto Kougreso. 
The 12th Kongreso Internacia was held at the Hague, Holland, iu 1920; the 
13th at Prague, in ] 921 ; the 14th at Helsingfors, Finnland, in 1922 ; and the 15th 
at Kiirnberg this year 

Esperanto — the language of peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work and tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken up the study 
of la kaia lingvo. It was used ai the great international Jamboree in London, a 
meeting so happy and harmonious that it was appropriately closed by the singing of 
Auld Langsyne. Esperanto is more easily learned than alphabets of some languages, 
and as it has no politics, religion, or physical force or selfish aims of any nation, but 
is pie-emim ntly pio bono publico, and peculiaily fitted for cementing and making per- 
manent and happy the coming efficiency of the League of. Nations. That organisa- 
ation has unanimously recommended the official and universal adoption of Espenanto, 
and its teaching in the schools of all civilised countries. 1923

The Worshippers of 
ALMIGHTY G0». 

Against Wanton Destruction 
by Men and Devils. 



BOLSHEVISM IS RAMPANT ! In Russia there is a desperate 
movement for the destruction of everything- religious. 
A propaganda poster represents an athletic working-man emerging 
from his Church wreckage on Karth and attacking the terror-stricken 
Divinites of Jews, Christians «nd Mahomedans, etc. in Heaven. Why 
will not these who believe in THE SUPREME REIKG unite to resist 
such horrors against humanity ? We may never assimilate each 
others creeds or forms of worship, but we can surely unite against the 
enemies of civilization, act in harmony for good, and live in peace. 
Espenanto is becoming the Common Language of the 
World, and has been adopted by one new sect, while many religious, 
scientific and business institutions use it for international purposes 
•very where, with amasing results.

with a visit, I began to think about a cordial welcome. A visit to 
Chapelhill at once appealed to me. From there the Bonnie Bay and 
the front of the town and shores, and the " sleeping kings " beyond 
could not fail to charm. The three church spires at the foot and 
half-way up the hill might call for remark owing their proximity. It 
would not have been congenial to explain the different forms of church 
government in Scotland, so I intended merely to say that the different 
churches were like different regiments in an army : where were to be 
fonud infantry, artillery (light and heavy), engineers, cavalry, and, in 
maritime countries, a navy. (The submarine and air forces had not 
yet emerged). Each had different arms, accoutrements and drill. So 
the different churches had different forms of worship. 

When David faced Goliath he preferred his trusty sling and faith in 
goodness and truth to protective armour like the defiant giant's. In- 
spired belief and zeal in a righteous cause will overcome difficulties. 
It is not for regiments or sections of worshippers to quarrel with each 
other's methods, but rather to seek the origin of our common human- 
ity and live at peace. 

Esperanto wishes to promote a mutual understanding among all peo- 
ple on earth, and does not seek to interfere with national affairs or 
methods. Individual and collective effort is desired : let none covet 
or despise the methods of others. Strife is a misfortune ; concerted 
action is necessary. Let us unite in our adoration of Almighty God, 
and He will give the victory over evil, and vouchsafe the blessing. 

Rothesay, Skotland. George Hiqgie.

In China, for thousand? of years, it was only scholars who 
could read and write the language, Recently, a phonetic 
alphabet was evolved through the instrumentality of fo- 
reign missionaries. It is not based on the romanic letters — 
so well known in Western Europe, and adapted for the 
different languages in India, — out the innovation is so 
popular that people in the streets are learning to read and 
write in a marvelously short time.
